Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Saturday said divisional-level ‘chief minister’s office’ will be set up across the state to ensure people need not have to travel to Mumbai for governmental work.
Speaking in the Assembly, Thackeray said these CMOs would be connected to the main one in Mantralaya, and claimed the move was part of his government’s efforts to decentralise power. He also announced that a Rs 10 per meal scheme for the poor, called ‘Shiv Bhojan’, will be started on a pilot basis at 50 places in the state.
The Maharashtra Vikas Aghadi government will work towards boosting tourism in the state, he said. In other announcements made on the last of the winter session, Thackeray said all pending irrigation projects in Vidarbha would be completed by June 2023, paddy growers will be given an additional Rs 200 per quintal, and ‘Krushi Samruddhi’ centres would be set up along the upcoming Mumbai-Nagpur Expressway.
